The Other Art Fair is expanding into the U.S. for the first time. The fair, which allows artists to exhibit their own work and customers to meet them in person, was launched in 2011 in London. The expansion is part of a collaboration with the online art gallery Saatchi Art.
“With the U.S. accounting for 43 percent of all art sales globally and New York’s reputation as one of the world’s cultural capitals, the city is a natural fit for our first location in the United States,” says Ryan Stanier, the fair’s founder. “With thousands of talented artists residing in the New York area, The Other Art Fair’s Brooklyn show will bring together the best and brightest new talent in an engaging environment perfect for a new generation of art collectors.”
The show will debut at the Brooklyn Expo Center from June 1 to 4, 2017. It will also return to London from March 30 to April 2, and in Australia it will make its debut in Melbourne in the spring, and return to Bristol in the summer and Sydney in the fall.
